The spline is the same as futaba.

I use the 1015 for steering and the 1313 for T/B. They are fast and strong and I havn't had any failures. I think they are very good value.

I used the 1015 on my RC8Tfor steering worked well till I put a aluminum horn on it (uses the futaba horn) after that striped out two sets of gears( now I'm waiting for the hv jr to come out) might work better on the 8t I use the 1313 on the t/b great servo stronger and faster than the specs say

They use the same number of splines as futaba but futaba horns are a loose fit so use the ACE/Associated plastic horns or alloy futaba ones.

And yes they are the same as the team associated servos as thunder tiger own team associated.

remember to use a the best battery you can buy if your using the 1015.

the 1015 pulls a lot of juice, we have 2 racers at my local races blow up batteries and fry servos when they used cheap hump packs.

your best bet is lipo, but a 1600+ pack should do.

just some heads up.

Great, great servos. I've got double 1015's in my buggy. honestly when they take a dump, I plan on switching over to hi-tec to match my truggy, but only so theyre all the same [hitec has that lifetime warranty].

I have no complaints with them though, great servos.

I run 1015's on steering and 1313's on throttle in both my MP9 and ST-RR. Zero complaints from me

I have to agree, they are great servos but they are a little on the heavy side. So if you are worried about weight, you might look at some other options. I actually use a 1015 in my xxxtcr electric truck just to add some weight to the nose. Works awesome.

Have mine for almost 2 years, 1211throttle and 1015steering. Zero problems so far....i think the only minor thing is that they require more juice ...so you better have a good pack or go lipo.

I use/d them and think they are a good value. However, since they changed from the orange label to the black label as well as released the AE versions, the quality has been spotty. My newer 1015 developed slop very fast and had a bit of a twitch. Never failed though. I have a 1013 that is 4 years old and going strong.
